Preview of English translation:
13. The Adhvaryu draws it by means of a cup, and inasmuch as he draws (grah) it, it is (called) a draught (graha, cup of Soma). The Udgatri (chanter), by the Mahavrata (saman), puts flavour (vital sap) into it; and the Mahavrata (saman) being (composed of) all those (five) samans, he thus puts flavour into it by means of all samans (hymn-tunes). The Hotri puts flavour into it by means of the Great Recitation; and the Great Recitation being (composed of) all those Rik-verses: he thus puts flavour into it by all the Rik-verses.
